Same goes for writing a feature-bare Jabber server in a higher,
widely understood programming language such as Python, where Wildfire
'fills this role so well' (albeit in Java).
By the way, this isn't just true because it helps 'the community'. I think the
most important aspect about OSS development is contributing to existing
projects, not writing your own. So IMO, extending an existing project fits the
SoC program a lot more than writing existing things from scratch, and we get
progress for the community for free.
